Recognizing type of disk connected to HP-UX Servers

Hi,

How do we differentiate types of disk connected to HP-UX Unix boxes for the following scenarios:

1) Disks on SAN (HP,EMC,IBM) connected storage

2) Disk on NAS ( NetApp's) Storage

3) Directly connected storage

Thanks,
Manoj

Shalom,

ioscan -fnkCdisk

The output is differentiated. You may have to remove the k option if you recently had storage presented to the system.

If you post ioscan output, someone can help you with the differentiation.

At that point, you can write a simple (or not so simple or awkful) awk script to format the output any way you or management needs.

When we've got all that stuff mixed up, it's simplest just to consider the hardware path of the card that you're using. What types of cards do you have, what their paths? This infers the disk types your connecting to.
